Khartoum International Airport serves the capital of Sudan and is located in the heart of the city.
A replacement airport, Khartoum New International Airport, is currently under construction and will lie approximately 40 kilometres from the city centre.
Khartoum New International Airport is planned to have an annual capacity of 7.5 million passengers, with an 86,000 square metre passenger terminal and plans for a hotel with 300 rooms. The airport will also have two 4,000 metre runways that will be capable of handling aircraft such as the airbus A380, the world's largest airliner.
Khartoum International Airport's departures terminal features a spacious passengers' hall designed using diverse Islamic architecture. Visitors travel to Khartoum by frequent flights from a number of destinations, including Cairo, Bahrain, Dubai and Abu Dhabi as well as locations further afield such as Amsterdam and Frankfurt.
